Fuego Del Sol became one of the breakout stars during the pandemic era of AEW, consistently performing on AEW Dark and gaining traction with the Jacksonville audience.
Fuego has remained part of the AEW family now that they are back on the road and though fans want him to get signed, that's not his call.
"It really comes down to one man who is not completely sold on me just yet," Fuego said on the World Class Cast. "The longer they hold it off, the more over it's going to make me. The reason I'm over is because I'm not signed. The people love me so much that they want to see me get the credit I deserve."
Fuego didn't want to make a direct comparison to Daniel Bryan and the "YES!" Movement, but noted the similarities of fans pushing for his signing.
Fuego thought he had wrestled his final match for the company on the July 6 episode of AEW Dark, which was the last show at Daily's Place before AEW went on the road again. However, he was brought in for the Miami show, which he initially didn't want to do, but was glad he did.
When discussing his free agent status, Fuego commented, "The goals of people have changed. A lot of wrestlers coming up -- I'm a free agent and unsigned, if WWE offered me something, I would have to take that in consideration, but the goal right now is to get signed by AEW, not to get signed by WWE. There is a goal change for Indie wrestlers. (AEW) helped over 100 wrestlers during the pandemic get work and give them exposure, give them a platform, and make a little bit of money. It's good money when you wrestle for AEW. I can't say enough good things and how much they capitalize."
Fuego is set to compete on the August 10 episode of AEW Dark when he takes on Daniel Garcia.
Fightful will have the stream and results for AEW Dark beginning at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
